Years ago, in a small town west of Chicago, a young couple was shot to death.

He was found right away, alongside the lovers' lane where they'd been parked.

Betty Jo Dean was found two days later, dead of a bullet to the brain, in a field that had already been searched, twice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

No one was ever arrested. The case was closed, perhaps forgotten. Perhaps not.

Now she's been exhumed. Except she's come out of the ground with someone else's head. Her own is missing.

She needs to be silenced again.

Men are dying in Chicago. Not ordinary men, but rich men, powerful men, men who control things in the city and the state. Men in the heavy cream.

They are being murdered, quietly, skillfully.

EXCERPT

Dek Elstrom's ex-father-in-law, a major player in everything Chicago, is likely to be one of them. Amanda, Dek's ex-wife, wants him to investigate.

Dek doesn't want this case. There's too much opportunity to chase wrong directions; too much chance to get more rich men killed. Too much chance to fail Amanda. Again.

But Amanda persists, and Dek agrees, because that's what he always does, with Amanda. What they had has never quite gone.

He learns quickly that Amanda's father is lying. The man knows plenty, and is talking about none of it.

Is he about to become a victim? Or is he a killer?
